Crowell & Moring has hired Joseph Palermo as its next chief operating officer, filling a position that has been vacant since last fall. Palermo, arriving from Lowenstein Sandler, is based in New York, as the Washington, D.C.-based firm seeks to grow its presence in the Big Apple.
“Crowell has been growing here. The firm wants to continue to grow. It’s a really exciting time to be in New York with this firm because it’s moving over to Hudson Yards at the end of the year and into some brand-new space,” Palermo said in an interview, referring to the firm’s plans to move its offices from 590 Madison Ave. to 2 Manhattan West in Hudson Yards.
